Earlier this afternoon, Pro-Chavez gunmen attacked the opposition-controlled Greater Caracas City Hall, downtown, using an submachine gun at one point.
A similar situation was reported at RCTV, the opposition controlled channel 2.
The anti-independent media incitement in the pro-government stations has been particularly intense over the last few days.

Globovision has just reported on the situation at El Nacional but says it is now "under control."
